New GENESTRA BRANDS™ Cor Defense Helps to Boost Immune Health

 In Press Release

Pittsburgh, PA, May 5, 2015 GENESTRA BRANDS™, a trusted Seroyal brand offering safe, effective, and reliable natural health products backed by clinical and traditional evidence, is proud to introduce its new Cor Defense product, a baker’s yeast formula containing antioxidants and EpiCor® for immune support.

“Supporting immune health is important year-round,” said Yves Yau, president, Seroyal International. “We’re proud to offer Cor Defense as a supplement that helps to balance immune response to seasonal challenges, in addition to supporting overall respiratory health.”

Developed in a convenient once-daily capsule format, Cor Defense contains European elderberry flower extract, vitamins C and D, and zinc along with 500 mg of clinically tested EpiCor, a dried fermentate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast).

A double-blinded, placebo-controlled crossover study by Jenson et al. found that within just 2 hours, 500 mg of EpiCor supplementation enhanced activation of natural killer (NK) cells and significantly increased antioxidant protection. EpiCor’s fast-acting antioxidant power is just one possible way in which it provides respiratory, immune, and healthy sinus support.

An additional double-blinded, placebo-controlled study found that supplementation with 500 mg of EpiCor for 3 months improved immune response to seasonal challenges.

“As a science-based ingredient manufacturer, Embria is very pleased to see EpiCor included in the Cor Defense product,” stated Paul Faganel, president of Embria Health Sciences, maker of EpiCor. “The research behind our product offers health care practitioners peace of mind regarding EpiCor’s efficacy in maintaining a strong immune system for better overall health.”

Cor Defense capsules are gluten-free and dairy-free, ideal for vegetarians.
